It's all good.
He is fantastic. Consistent and easy to listen to.
Just love this book.
Do yourself a favour and listen to this book. Then buy a copy of the book, read it yourself. What ever you do, don't watch the 1950s Hollywood production of War & Peace. The novel is so much better.
This is classic Sharpe. He is still learning to be an officer but has the respect of his men and now is attached to a regiment. He saves a colour and captures an eagle. This books explains nicely how tactics and battles are fort. Frederick Davidson does an excellent job with narrating it but I have to admit I don't like his Harper's voice. Simonset is annoying but in character. Bernard Cornewell did very well with this book and sets you up nicely to fall in love with the entire series.
As this book was written years after Sharpe's Rifles and Sharpe's Eagle it should fit nicely between the two and a few facts don't quite work well. Yes they mention his poor dead estrange wife and child, which are never mentioned in any of the other books besides Sharpe's Trafalgar, and Sharpe's Prey. He thinks about staying behind enemy lines to stay away from the army but the other books describes his longing for the army even though it can treat him with scorn. He knows Arthur Wellsley to talk without any reserve that he has in other books following and he doesn't have the self questioning manner that he has in his other books as he rises in rank. Otherwise, Sharpe gets into trouble, gets out of trouble, gets the bad guy and saves the girl in the end.
Selling means never standing still but adapting and learning new methods and mind sets. Listen to this book and learn a few skills for the hard times that will come.
Fail quickly and fail often. Well at least don't be afraid of it. Sort of 'Ready, Fire, Aim' approach. Through out Ralph Health career in advertising he has learnt much wisdom and this book is worth listening to. Narrated by T. Ryder Smith who sounds a little old and tired but still does a reasonable job. Why listen to this book, because it tells you that living is trying and trying sometimes ends in failure, well as long as you don't learn from it and keep trying it is failure otherwise it is a step to fulfilment. Listen to this book, what have you got to lose?
Lt Richard Sharpe might have come a long way from India, but a fat lot of good it has done him. A Quarter Master in a retreating army that is being harassed to extinction by the enemy. Of course Sharpe gets an opportunity to shine but first he has to win over lost riflemen who would rather kill him than follow him south. This book is great with bad guys, twists and turns and a victorious end to it all. First book I read of the Sharpe series and still my favourite, although Sharpe's Gold is pretty good. Once you get use to Frederick Davidson narration this book is great. He does the voices really well, although the Spanish and French is a little clique. Bernard Cornwell descriptions in this book are spot on and you are transported back to Spain during the winter of 1808 during the Napoleonic Peninsular campaign and you can feel the cold, hunger and shock of battle. It doesn't get much better than this book but it does!
Not a hard listen too and very similar to Bill Caskey's Podcast. Take the intro advice and listen to this often and in short amounts. It will help you overcome some road blocks to modern selling.
Pull out a pen & paper and when they start talking algebra, start scratching otherwise you'll become lost in the argument. As an introduction, it is okay, but it will not necessarily make you smarter, just open your mind. Prepare to do more.
If you are new to sales, this book is excellent, if you are in the game and need some direction, then this book is gold. Jeffrey doesn't mince words but he does tell you how it is and how it can be. He paces out this book nicely and his style is unique and entertaining. One point he makes is to have fun and that is my kind of advice I like to hear. Who said work can't be fun. He is good and I think this book will make you good at your type of sales. Not a book of 'if you believe you can' or the new sales is all about finding yourself but rather a good slant on the whole business of what sales is about and what you need to work at to make it work for you. Good book, great man.
Not impressed with this book and found it annoying. Look for better books on this subject.
Art Markman makes it so clear how to think better to solve problems, innovate, and get things done solo or in groups that this book is a must. Not pop psychology and not long and boring. If you just take away the concepts on smart habits you are a winner baby.
Do yourself a favour and listen to this book slowly. Learn from it and take the concepts into your own realm you will profit straight away.
